I have to lift the engine about 5 inches to pull the trans. Most of the wires and cables can stay attached. I've done this before. The problem is time right now. I have to work on the trailer so as not to damage the boat while towing. Last year the boat moved forward on the trailer when it filled with water in the rain and I want to fix the trailer before I tow it again. So I need to remove the boat from the trailer and store it somewhere on the water. Browns sea plane base offered me one of their slips if the water is deep enough. I think it is. But with work and getting ready to leave there just isnt enough time. :( Next year will be the one.

It's called thrashing.
I did it.
Paul did it.
Your turn.
We were thrashing to get our boats to run at the G. I was putting last minute details on mine on Friday of G1 for first splash. It was a group effort. Just bring it and we can help you get it sorted out. Bring the parts & widgets and come on.
We want to see it go.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:
